department has this. if it is a member of our law enforcement or intelligence service that is agency makes sure to shepherd the person around the system. it is sort of incomprehensible to me these are people, the family members were identified and met with senior officials and it is not as though they don't know where she is. >> initially i thought maybe they were in contact with sean smith's wife who is i guess in the netherlands? >> that is right. with a family that has lost someone, there is more than one person. there is the family and you may have the spouse. and it becomes the government' s responsibility to keep the family in formed. >> you reached out to the state department what are they saying? >> they are saying since the beginning they have made it a priority to maintain contact. they say in the last 24 hours before the hearing they reached out by phone to at least one member of the family and told them what would be reported at the congressional hearing and they also said that the mother of sean is contacted by us. so, they won't get into a lot of specifics but they maintain t
department has this. if it's an employee lost, or a member of one of our law enforcement or intelligence service, that agency takes ownership of making sure to shepherd the person through the system and around the system. in many respects, it's sort of incomprehensible to me. these are people -- the family members were identified. they met with senior officials, and it is not as though they don't know where she is. >> initially i thought maybe they were in contact with sean smith's wife, who, i guess, is in the netherlands. but she was at this reception. they clearly talked to her. >> that's right. in fact, often times with a family that's lost someone, there's more than one person. so you'll have the parents of the victim, you may have a spouse, extended family. and it becomes the government' s responsibility to care for that family and keep the family informed. >> jill, you reached out to the state department this evening about what pat is saying what are they saying? >> they are saying since the beginning they have made it a priority to maintain contact. they say in the last 24 hours
they gather the raw data. legitimate questions, but there are also conspiracy theories. the law school examiners, i don't think bls cooked numbers. i think people lied about getting jobs. that would have the same effect. there is no evidence of that. the bls is constantly trying to get it right. sometimes it helps the incumbent president, sometimes not. here's what eric erickson tweeted. quote, i don't think it's healthy to indicate that the jobs numbers are cooked. a best-selling author and currently writes a blog with his wife susie. so do you really believe that people in the obama campaign, the chicago guy that you tweeted about, that they cooked the numbers? >> anderson, last night before these numbers came out, i tweeted, i wonder what the assumptions will be tomorrow. because last month, the assumptions were that participation rate dropped to the lowest level since jimmy connor. that means people quit looking for work so they don't count. there are so many assumptions that one makes coming into these numbers. you pointed out very accurately that they polled 60,000 people out of
-existing conditions. ironically, the health care reform law mitt romney signed as governor and remains in effect today in massachusetts does mandate coverage for anyone with pre-existing conditions, whether they already have health insurance or not. a bit later in the program, we will talk about one of the few moments that mr. romney failed to strike a tone of moderation. it concerns a great big yellow bird. that makes it on our "ridiculist" tonight. a good friend of his, oscar the grouch, i can tell you it's really got my attention. first, ari fleischer with the serious stuff. he serves as part-time unpaid communications consultant to the romney campaign and political analyst, roland martin. ari, what do you make -- do you say that mitt romney is seeming to be striking some more centrist positions, or at least sounding more centrist? >> well, let me try to peel this onion one slice at a time. the 47% comment really breaks down to two. one is that the pejorative way he spoke about the 47%, which as i, you didn't show my clip, when you asked me about that the day afterwards, i said it was wrong, they'r
protection to women, and believes that abortion laws should be overturned and returned to the states. so keep in mind, was his comment to the des moines an attempt to taylor his message to voters there, or simply a mistake? romney's views have is changed over time, seems to coincide with where and when he is running for office. in 1994 he was running for senate against ted kennedy, and said this. >> i believe that abortion should be not allowed, i believe that since roev wade has been the law for 20 years, we should sustain and support it. and i sustain and support the right of a woman to make that choice. >> he lost that election, later he said this. >> so when asked if i will preserve and protect a woman's right to choose, i make the answer yes. >> in fact he promised during the debate not to make any changes which would make that more difficult for a woman to make that choice herself, once elected, he changed the choice, two years later he was running for president on a strong pro life platform. now one opponent, fred thompson, actually used that clip against him in an ad. i asked him abou
college outside boston like her mother and hillary clinton. after that she was off to get a law degree in washington. while working in d.c. she acquired a reputation as a smart, up and coming lobbyist. then in 1999, her professional life took a turn toward the personal side. she met the young first term republican representative, paul ryan. >> she was very starry-eyed, very smitten with him. i think he with her. they both have a lot of similar interests and a lot in common. there was not any conflict at all between them. i think in regards to their interests, their backgrounds, what they held important for their futures. >> reporter: he took her hunting, proposed at a favorite fishing hole, and they married a year later. leslie was a bridesmaid. thwedding? >> beautiful. >> reporter: the ryans set up house in his hometown in wisconsin, raising three children with an old-fashioned vision of the american dream. >> janna and i, liza, charlie and sam, america is a place where if you work hard and play by the rules, you can get ahead. >> reporter: in terms of politics, they speak with one vo
conditions. ironically, the health care law that mitt romney signed in massachusetts and remains in place, it does allow for preexisting conditions whether they have health insurance or not. we will be watching big bird and his good friend oscar the grouch. it certainly got my attention. but first we have political analyst roland martin. do you think mitt romney is taking more centrist positions? >> the 47% comment really breaks down into two. the pejorative way he talked about the 47%, you didn't show my clip. when you asked me about that the day afterwards, i said he was wrong, they aren't victims and he shouldn't use that word. the economic part of it is factually right. we are a country where 47% should be excused for paying any income taxes. >> but he said that's totally wrong. >> let me get to that. the top 47% make more than $250,000 a year and pay more income taxes. he was wrong by saying 47%. he was right in saying 47% don't pay income taxes. you talk about lifting those people up so they can make it in america. that's what they want. they want to become taxpayers, and that's whe
between these two but unlike the presidential debate where you had a former law professor and former ceo, these are two guys with blue collar backgrounds and have spent a lot of time out there campaigning. how noticeable do you think that's going to be? >> it takes one to know one. these are the two beer drinkers in this race. the president and governor romney, no insult intended, can seem a bit elite, detached sometimes. these are more blue collar guys. they're comfortable in an irish pub, in a vfw post. that's their job on the campaign trail, go out and get the working class voters who could be key especially in some of the idaho in west battleground states. they are somewhat alike these two, and that's what's stroefting. liberals are looking for biden to put up the fight the president did not bring to the first debate. both campaigns view this as a base election. you have here a leading conservative, potential 2016 candidate if mitt romney loses and the vice president of the united states, a leading liberal who hasn't ruled out a 2016 run of his own. >> there's a 2016 subplot already
